Precious Bodily Fluids


Someone recently had the idea of alphabetizing a movie list. (Some others are here, here, and here.) I’m not really sticking to the strict rules.

  1. Interesting – we actually have four matches with Fight Club, The Maltese Falcon, Ladri Di Biciclette (Bicycle Thieves on my list), and The Quiet Man…

  2. I knew we had some things in common. I haven’t seen The Quiet Man in years, but there’s not a lot of selection in the “Q” category. I appreciated your inclusion of Jules et Jim, but, pathetically, I have yet to see it. Hence, The Jerk.

  4. Whoa – The Decalogue totally got the shaft at the end.

  5. Frick. How about this: it goes without saying. Or, that would’ve been too easy and not interesting enough. Like I said, they don’t reflect my actual favorites. But thank you for pointing it out.
